South Korea visitors in Regenstauf

Over from the Korean Carbon Valley, representatives of the provincial government of Jeollabuk and the research institute KCTEC flew in to find out about the further education and consulting portfolios offered by Eckert Schools International.

The German Industrial Master Craftsman International and Train-the-Trainer programmes were of particular interest. The guests travelled as part of the MAI iTeCK project from Eckert Schools Augsburg. The German dual educational system enjoys a first class reputation in South Korea. And now, the visitors wanted to learn more about how it works on the ground.

The goal is to pilot a dual vocational educational programe in the area carbon fibre - composite materials in the Korean Carbon Valley. The aim for MAI iTeCH and their Korean guests is a cooperative education project in Jeonbuk Carbon Valley. The MAI iTeCH team in Augsburg is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, reinforced by the Application Center for Materials and Environmental Research (AMU) at the University of Augsburg and the Leading-Edge Cluster MAI Carbon.


The visit of the Korean delegation has successfully brought together key figures from Korean politics and CFRP research with education and research - made in Germany. After tours of research institutes and companies involved with carbon fibre composite materials, the tour of Eckert Schools' campus was the highlight of the trip. The guests signed the International School's honoured visitors book (Goldene Buch) and expressed their enthusiasm over the opportunities Eckert Schools offers learners. The visit of the delegation is the starting signal for possible educational cooperation.  A MOU was already been signed at JEC Asia, an international trade fair for composite materials in Seoul.
